As long as everybody's self-aware enough to understand that not every client is ideal, then they can refer those clients to people who do what they do for different types of people.
In this episode, we discussed:
- The key to successful networking (hint: you don't need to see everyone as your competitor - everyone brings something unique to the table).
- The importance of scaling genuine connections in a group of women who share core values.
- The "mere exposure effect," where repeated interaction with someone, even through comments, leads to increased trust and preference.
- The value of curiosity and genuine connection when using LinkedIn and other platforms, not just seeking business opportunities.
- Why it's better to refer non-ideal clients to others who can better serve them, so you can attract clients that share your values (networking is a quality over quantity game).
